Short summary
Future climate and recharge change scenarios are tested on lake hydrological balances to simulate changes in lake isotopic signature and water quality. Results highlight that lake water evolution depends mainly on the location and the intensity of recharge changes. Lake water isotopic composition appears to be particularly sensitive to future changes in recharge for lakes with between 50 % and 80 % of groundwater in their total inflows.
